Tallinn

The best-preserved Medieval Old town in Northern Europe is in Tallinn. It has been included in the List of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Hidden in this Old town lies a romantic network of crooked cobblestone streets, preserved authentically from the Middle Ages. Two km of the old City Defense Wall and twenty six defense towers bear witness to the once-mighty system of defense structures. Here also lies the best-preserved Medieval town hall in Northern Europe, the oldest apothecary still functioning in the world, and much more.

Churches and convents, passageways and courtyards, imposing merchantsdwelling houses, shelters, and parks give a sense of the true medieval spirit underlying the Old town to this day.

The bus tour of the Old town starts with a coach tour around the Old town offering a fascinating view of the medieval city. The walking tour begins in the Upper Town Toompea with a stop in front of Toompea Palace, the seat of the Estonian Parliament, also taking a look at the limestone walls and towers that belonged to its predecessor the medieval Toompea Castle.

Side by side with Toompea lies the medieval Lower Town. Its landmarks include the 14th and 15th century Gothic Town Hall, the only one surviving in the Nordic countries, the Holy Ghost Church, the former St. Nicholas” Church housing a museum of medieval art, the magnificent St. Olai’s with its soaring spire, once the world’s second tallest building, and an old chemist’s shop (founded in 1422), numerous authentic Hanseatic merchant houses.

The next to visit are the Russian Orthodox Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and Dome Church (13th-18th centuries). You will take a walk along the short and narrow medieval cobblestone streets that lead you to some panoramic viewpoints facing this medieval pearl.
